1931: Actress Mamie Van Doren, who starred in some of the first movies to feature rock 'n' roll music and became identified with the music's rebellious style, is born Joan Lucille Olander in Rowena, S.D. Some of Van Doren's more noteworthy movies include "The All American," "Teacher's Pet," "Born Reckless," "High School Confidential" (pictured) and "The Beat Generation," but she is better remembered for her provocative roles in B-movies like "Untamed Youth," "Girls Town," "The Private Lives of Adam and Eve," "Sex Kittens Go to College" and "Vice Raid."
